Everything about this hotel is exceptional, from the musical greeting whenever a new guest arrives at Reception to the quality of the rooms (opt for Ocean view rather than rainforest). The restaurants (all of them) are fantastic although I would be perfectly content dining at Tepi Laut every night for the Asian cuisine. Breakfast is mind-blowing in its variety -...

My wife and I want to celebrate our 26th anniversity in a special way and we have decided to have a golf vacation at the Shangri-la Rasa Ria resort and it was indeed a most enjoyable and memorable experience.

While we only had 2 nights here it was still so hard to leave this wonderful place, just about everything has been so well thought out from filling out the check in paper work in the room with you, the full detailed room explanation, water in glass bottles just the little things like that made these one of the best...

You feel like you're in your own world there! Great range of sea sports and land activities for adults and kids. Love that there is an exclusive park to see the wildlife so close. At the same time its not far from KK town to get a taste of local life, markets and seafood. We were a party of 7...

Having been here 4 years back and enjoyed it very much. First off, it is a large resort, rooms are fine, the grounds are lush and well cared for-- pools are nice with plenty place to take in the sun. The private beach has brilliant sand, no stones, no rubbish, waves are nice, not intimidating-- So why 3 star rating?...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Shangri-La's Rasa Ria Resort & Spa is set on Pantai Dalit beach surrounded by 400 acres of lush tropical vegetation, including a unique nature reserve. Here you'll find a remarkable array of indigenous flora and fauna. Unexpected encounters with hornbills who glide right overhead during breakfast, a friendly bear cat greeting you from a tree or the occasional wild rabbit, iguana or squirrel crossing your path are all part of the magic of this remarkable resort. Shangri-La's Rasa Ria Resort & Spa goes beyond the offerings of Kota Kinabalu hotels by providing numerous options for relaxation. This includes the magnificent Spa at Dalit Bay, a wide range of water sports, Rasa Ria's own catamarans for cruises and deep sea fishing, a challenging 18-hole championship golf course, tennis, horse riding, a fitness centre and, of course, a fun-filled Kids' Club to care for younger visitors. ... more   less
